Remembering a Legend
John LeFevre '41
Colgate lost a legend when John LeFevre '41 passed away one week shy of his 75th reunion. John was co-chair of the 1819 Circle and a consecutive donor since he graduated. In John's words...
“I suspect my story is not one bit different from most other people who give, who have made and kept some lifelong friends. We are each connected to Colgate and it’s something that we just don’t ‘shake.’ Giving something back each year has become an ongoing part of my life and I have chosen to support Colgate in ways that are meaningful to me.”
“It’s important that we each find our own way to make a difference at Colgate. Every gift truly makes an impact and your participation matters. The creation of the 1819 Circle is Colgate’s way of saying ‘thank you’ to the many alumni who give back each year.”
